Beirut River Solar Snake Project Launched
6 years ago
Beirut River Solar Snake, the first solar farm of renewable energy to be constructed in Lebanon, is a project launched yesterday by the Ministry of Energy and Water aiming to produce 1MW of clean energy in the first phase that will fund the second phase that will produce 10MW when the project is finished, covering 6,500 square KM of the river 

The maximum budget is set to a maximum of $4 million. But this cost is projected to decrease knowing that similar projects in Jordan cost around $2.3 million without taking into consideration the cost incurred by the structure.


Moreover, the French Embassy will provide Lebanon with a solar panel testing platform which will serve as a lab. This will also have educational purposes for all parties concerned including students. I see it as a mean to involve the population. The pre-qualification bid announcement for the Beirut River Solar Snake project will take place on 23 April 2013.
